1. THE OPENING MONSTER’S BALL MATCH: Eric Young vs. “The Monster” Abyss.
THE WINNER: “THE MONSTER” ABYSS!!!
Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) stated that people have asked him where he was since 2010, and he said that he was living life on his terms. He stated that people in TNA think that they can get away with whatever they want, and that things need to change. He mentioned that TNA has everything needed to thrive, but has suffered mismanagement and vowed that it will never happen again. As he was about to announce his plans, Rockstar Spud’s appearance stopped it. Spud was not happy with MVP not introducing himself to TNA President Dixie Carter, but MVP made the announcement that the TNA Board of Directors approved of TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus facing Kurt Angle in a non-title match later on!!!
Mike Tenay announced that in three weeks, Kurt will be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame in London, Great Britain, United Kingdom!!!
The Returning Curry Man was ready for a match when Bully Ray arrived with the casket designed for Mr. Anderson. Curry Man charged at Bully, but was stopped with a foot to the chest. Bully then piledrived him while screaming “Anderson! Anderson!”. Bully put him in the casket, and looked into the camera and said “Ken Anderson, “I’m going to end your career”.
TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries vowed to repeat how he won back the title until he was interrupted by TNA World Tag Team Champions The Bro Mans (Robbie E and Jesse Godderz), and ambushed by Zema Ion who decided to cash-in his Feast or Fired briefcase…..
